The 2019 Hope Continues 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk is the third year of an annual event that replaces the prior Tupelo Breast Cancer Awareness Run. 100% of the proceeds will stay in the sixteen counties of Northeast Mississippi. Funds will be used to provide screening and support for affected individuals. Last year we were able to raise over $50,000 dollars through the race, sponsors, and donations. Let’s beat that amount this year! Also this year we have an all new race course! The new course is easier with the start and finish remaining in the same location in down town Tupelo.
Awards will be given for timed participants in the 5K only. Equal awards for female and male runners. One deep in Over-All, Masters and Grandmasters. Three deep in the following age groups: 0-9, 10-14,15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and over.
Entry fees are $20 for the 5K and $15 for the 1 Mile Walk until September 15, 2019. The fees go up to $25 for the 5K and $20 for the 1 Mile Walk until October 25, 2019. Race day registration will be available at $30 for the 5K and $25 for the 1 Mile Walk. There is a extra $5 fee if you wish to have a timing chip to be eligible for awards in the 5K.
Packet pickup will be held at Core Cycle & Outdoor on October 25 from 2p.m. till 7 p.m. Core is located at 1697 N. Coley Rd. Tupelo, MS 38801
